Auction for the American Cancer Society

Ivy of our sister blog, This is LaVerge, TN contacted me and asked me to make our readers aware of the Auction for the American Cancer Society. I am reposting the original post, written by Kathy T.
Come one, come all! On Thursday, March 30th beginning at 5:00 p.m., Bob Parks Realty (Smyrna and Auction team) are hosting a live auction benefiting the American Cancer Society. We have worked tirelessly to collect an amazing assortment of professional sports memoribilia, including an autographed photo of Titans' Coach Jeff Fisher, signed footballs, jerseys & helmets, autographed photos, and much more. To see more, click FUNDRAISER AUCTION.

After hearing about the tragic death of Dana Reeve today from lung cancer, we are reminded that cancer affects so many people. I would bet that every single one of us has been touched somehow with this horrible, evil disease. Personally, I was devastated when I lost my 43-year old brother-in-law three years ago to bladder cancer. He left behind four beautiful children and a widow who now struggles to not only make ends meet, but to raise their children alone. Another friend of mine, Ana Barnes, died this past September after a desperate fight against stomach cancer. She was in her 30's - how unfair.

PLEASE COME TO THIS EVENT! You can buy tickets for an all-you-can-eat spread provided by Logans Roadhouse and other restaurants. You can bid on an amazing array of items - bids range from $5 to $1200. If you have questions about the auction, please call my office at 615-459-4040! See you there!!
